I have discovered if you ever want to make a teacher's life hell - write well over the maximum amount of pages given. Students had to turn in a 3-5 page midterm reflecting back on the class. Well I've had one 17 page paper, a 16 pager, several 10-12 pages, and several more 7 -10 pagers. Since I have no ownership of the assignments, I wasn't the one who came up with the page limitation. I have taken off points becuase of the great lengths of some of the papers but this is taking me forever to finish.
